Whether planting seeds, growing flowers, or tending vegetables--and eating them!--six-year-old Ashley enjoys the work and pleasure of a gardening year. She looks for wildflowers in the woods, visits the nursery and botanical garden with her friend Lily, and plants a garden pleasing to the eye and the appetite. In autumn her family celebrates the harvest with a homegrown picnic. Then it's time for Ashley to start planning what she'll grow again next spring.
Continuing with her acclaimed Very Young series, renowned photoessayist Jill Krementz follows a young gardener through the seasons. Full-color, sunlit photographs accompany the clear and simple text to introduce the joys of gardening as well as the responsibility of conservation to the youngest reader. From spring's first planting to fall's final harvest, Ashley's enthusiasm invites all budding gardeners to share in the wonder of growing things.
